Topic Background:

Consumers walking into any nutritional supplement store today are faced with thousands of herbal remedies to treat common ailments: Echinacea for colds, dandelion root to help with water retention, grapeseed to promote healthy aging. Because of the increase in consumers including dietary supplements in their daily routine, dietary supplements have now become a $5 billion industry.

How do consumers know exactly what's in the supplement pills they are taking? A group of Canadian researchers put out a recent study that used DNA bar-coding to test what was really in those bottles. The researchers found that only two out of twelve companies put what they claimed was in their supplements in the bottles. The rest either had contaminants or substitutes, like rice or wheat. Given the statistics, how can consumers know what is really in purchased supplements? What regulations are currently in place; how can consumers keep both safe and informed? Regulatory agencies in the United States, Canada, and the EU have begun to tighten and enforce regulations on dietary supplement manufacturers to ensure consumer safety and nutritional legality.
